Farewell...and Stay Safe

By lupus tenebrae

As you once said, I’m safe and well
I pray that you’ll be more the same.
And all the praise I’ve yet to tell,
as you once said, I’m safe and well.
I’ve yet to show the open shell,
and for this I take all the blame.
As you once said, I’m safe and well
I pray that you’ll be more the same.

Author's Note:

No flashy gimmicks this time, just a simple triolet, for a good and deserving friend. Maybe too simple, as words can't express my true feelings as easily. Stay safe Opklot, and know that you are missed.

    This poem sounds so- longing from you - Beautiful homage to a great friend. "I am ok but just need to know you are too"

    Ya I remember our talks, he always gave good advise. He always looked out for my well being and would mail me to check up on me when I've been off for some time, I miss that and I miss him. This was a very nice tribute Wolfy, thank you for sharing this with us here on DP, take care my friend =)

    Really nice tribute. Your word choice and format really show a vulnerability for both the situation and the effect they had on you. Thank you.

    We can always rely on you, man, to say the things we cannot. This is truly a sad day. We've lost someone very dear to many of us. Thanks for this, man.
